Mia and her teaching parents
You Made Their Christmas So Special!
December is a magical month for our kids.  They had fun at  Tour of Lights where kids got to compete for the best Christmas cottage decorations. Many of you visited our cottages with presents, meals, and lots of love for the Day of Wonder.  But Mia's Christmas has probably been the most special of them all.  Click here to read why she has not stopped talking about Santa.
George Graduated College! 

George came to Boys and Girls Country at the age of 13. He was a very stubborn "Texas tough" teenager who would not take directions.  He remembers growing up extremely bitter and resentful. It was a rough ride, but he made it! Thank you for giving him a chance!

Alumni Pays It Forward

Boys and Girls Country kids participate in a variety of activities, including volunteering at the Houston Food Bank, going to Christian summer camps, and even going on hunting trips. We are always thrilled when alumni reach out to share the story of how these experiences have impacted their lives. Recently, Kelly Ailly contacted Operations Director Quintes Stark to share that he has become a hunting guide for Operation Orphans.

About Boys and Girls Country

In 1971, Tommy and Jean Robinson founded Boys and Girls Country with $25 and two acres of land.  Their intent-to provide a Christian home for children from families in crisis-has been the mission of BGC ever since. 
Every year, more than 100 children and young adults from families in crisis call Boys and Girls Country home. It costs $146 per day to care for one child at Boys and Girls Country.  We can't do it without your gifts of time, treasure and talent. Thank you for investing in our kids!
